Joined 13 years ago from Decorah, IA
I live in Decorah, IA. I'm still new to the area and live here since October 31, 2012. I write fiction, short stories, poetry, and personal essays.
I was raaised in a small town called New Hartford, IA, where there are more stiffs in the cemetery than living in town. It's one of those towns where you blink you missed it kind. If you are not familar with New Hartford is located. It's on Highway 57 between Cedar Falls and Parkersburg.
I stayed there until I graduated from high school then moved away at ninteen years old, to a CETA work camp at Luster Heights next to Harpers Ferry, IA, I worked there doing the summer and ended up dishwashing at a Perkins restaurant in Mason City, IA.
In 1992, I started college at UNI, University of Northern Iowa located in Cedar Falls, IA. I graduated with a BA degree in English and a minor in Creative Writing.
I stayed in the Waterloo and Cedar Falls area until March 2011, when I started working as a peer support specialist at Northeast Iowa Behavioral Health. I stayed employed there until November 30, 2012 when funding ran out every peer support specialist was relaeased.
